Hi Kay99

The death certificate was for a different Mary.

Thank you for your help regardless. It least I know that all possibilities have been thoroughly searched and I can put this away.

Cheers Karen

Have you found Mary's birth certificate??   I noticed this one on the GRO in the area that covers Fixby and no mother's maiden name was listed
    
PITCHFORTH, MARY        No Mothers Maiden Name     
GRO Ref: 1863  Dec Quarter in HALIFAX  Volume 09A  Page 421

Hi Sloe Gin

This sounds like the most likely explanation.

Thank you


Even if it was phrased that way, he could have misheard it as
'Was the wee baby, Mary, your daughter's?'

There is a lot of scope for misunderstandings, and if no other explanation is found I think I would put it down to that.
